Where do the Pac-12 profits rank?

6/20/2011

Kristi Dosh -- the SportsBizzMiss -- has sifted through the numbers to find out the most profitable college sports programs for the 2009-2010 school year -- football and men's basketball -- and the Pac-12 does not do so well.

No Pac-12 team ranked in the top-25 in terms of profitability. Utah football, apparently, isn't among the 140 most profitable programs, and that includes teams operating at over a $2 million deficit.

The new, $2.7 billion TV deal can't arrive soon enough, eh?

Texas football is No. 1 with a profit of $68.8 million after $25.1 million in expenses.

The number next to the school is national ranking.
